OK, thanks.

I did not claim there should be a difference, I was asking the question.

IIRC I increased the horizontal space of compressed MMR in order to
prevent overlapping of tempo indications in a piece for an instrument
part with many MMR (similar to what Kieren is also asking/fighting

I also used it as a workaround because "full measure rests take too
little horizontal space compared to notes" (issue 1798, still open as
issue 3135).

I can't, that's why I was asking the question (but instrument parts
with lots of MMR and tempo indications still needs careful thinking).
Since it seems "single Whole Measure Rest" and "compressed MMR"
are usually treated similarly, sorry for the noise.

Thank you for your consideration.
